Coach of Nigeria’s football team to the just-concluded Rio 2016 Olympics, Samson Siasia, has declared he will no longer coach the team.
Mr Siasia lamented that he was treated badly by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) while he was away on a national duty in Brazil.
The Olympic Bronze medal-winning coach told Vanguard that the Federation went to his house to retrieve the official car given to him from his wife.
“My next step is that I am done with Nigeria for now.
“You can’t keep going to a place where they don’t appreciate you. It does not worth it. Sometimes it is not about the money but the approach.
“They seem not to appreciate the sacrifices. I know how much I have sacrificed since the team began camping two years ago. How can you keep going to people who don’t appreciate you?
“It does not make sense, so I am done for now. I have to go somewhere else where they will appreciate what I have done and what I can do and pay me the respect that I deserve,” Mr Siasia said.
“Even before I returned from the Olympics, the only car they gave me, they took it away from my wife. That is just awesome.
“That is not how to treat someone who was out there seeking glory for the nation. Let them eat their national team,” he also said.
